      • Proposal evaluation will be ranked by the workshop committee plus the conference chair and then presented to the LOC for input.
      • Each evaluator will rank the proposals: 15 points for the best ones, 14 for the second, and so on...
    • Tasks
      • Review proposal submissions for under represented projects and send out reminders if needed (Complete by 26 January 2011)
      • Discuss discounts for presenters with the LOC (Does this include tutorial presenters as well as workshop presenters?).
      • Discuss venue logistics with LOC, need more details.
        • After the LOC meeting we seem good for 4 sessions of 6 workshops, could maybe add more if needed. Should be fine to have GITA install an image on all the workshop computers.
